Checking Out, Renewing or Returning Materials

Checking Out Materials

To check out Maag Library materials and materials borrowed from OhioLINK or through InterLibrary Loan, please bring your YSU ID to the Circulation Desk.

For people who don't have your YSU ID with you, you can check out with your valid driver's licenses or passport with your YSU Y number.

Returning Materials

Date-due slips are placed in all materials borrowed. You are responsible for returning or renewing the materials by the due date. All borrowed materials remain the patron’s responsibility.

Library materials may be returned to the Circulation Desk during library hours. When closed, returns may be deposited in the drop box located on the west side of Maag Library (facing Ward Beecher Hall).
